We fell in love with Rachel McAdams as the redheaded Southern belle in The Notebook. Who would have guessed that one-half of the greatest movie kiss ever (mandatory pause to swoon over Ryan Gosling) would then go on to play blonde queen bee Regina George in Mean Girls? Whether she's blonde, red or brunette, McAdams always looks gorgeous and perfect for the part.

Speaking of Mean Girls, remember when Lindsay Lohan was a gorgeous, natural redhead? We think that adorable freckled kid from The Parent Trap's downward spiral started when she dyed her gorgeous russet locks (and got a load of plastic surgery, but we'll pick and choose our battles with La Lohan). Lindsay, go back to red!

When you're a badass Barbadian beauty like Rihanna, you can rock whatever hair color you want. In the past year al one, the singer has gone from brown and blonde stripes to neon red--and she's even looked like Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons. Oh, and she's also had a mohawk, an asymmetrical bob and a butt-length braid. Pardon our cheesiness, but she's the "Only Girl in the World" who can pull all that off.

Flower child Drew Barrymore is spontaneous and whimsical, which explains why she changes her hair color and style at a moment's notice. With her peaches and cream complexion, Drew can pull off any shade!

Katy Perry seemed pretty attached to her black hair/blue-eyed/alabaster-complexioned look when she burst onto the scene with her first mainstream hit, "I Kissed A Girl." Perhaps Rihanna and Lady Gaga are rubbing off on the singer; however, because this summer she's transitioned slowly from red to blonde. The singer was recently spotted with pink and lavender hair, but who knows how long that will last?

British actress Carey Mulligan earned an Oscar nomination for her first major role in An Education. Since then, Mulligan has become known for her ability to effortlessly transform into character, often with the help of a hair color change.

You don't think of Jessica Alba as someone who deviates too far from her well-known image. Nevertheless, the actress has actually been every hue from golden blonde to dark brown over the course of her career.

She's naturally blonde-haired and blue-eyed, but Evan Rachel Wood loves experimenting with hair colors and styles. The actress recently shocked everyone when she chopped off her long locks and revealed a spiky, short crop!

Unlike older sister Jessica, Ashlee Simpson isn't afraid to experiment with her look. The singer was at the forefront of fall 2010's ombr hair trend and winter 2011's wave of pixie cuts.

When you're a supermodel like Selita Ebanks, you can pull off any cut and color--even Kool Aid red. Although we wouldn't really recommend Kool Aid red for anyone, especially our seventh grade selves (oh, the horrible memories).

She started her career as a medium-length blonde on Dawson's Creek, but since her days in North Carolina, Michelle Williams has shown her versatility with truly heartfelt roles. The actress also brought Mia Farrow's famous blonde crop hairstyle from the '70s back into vogue.
